Lecture by Dennis Duncan and Gill Partington of Birkbeck, University of London,


In conjunction with current exhibition, Canan Tolon: Sidesteps (until 16 March). Taking the theme of iteration in Canan Tolon's work as their starting point, Gill Partington and Dennis Duncan of Birkbeck, University of London, look at two very different literary representations of repetition: the traumatic re-enactments of Tom McCarthy's Remainder and the stylistic spree of Raymond Queneau's mid-century classic, Exercises in Style.
